Anywho... on Saturday I got up early to set up for the first of 2 showers I helped host. This one was at my home church for Kori and baby Anabella Grace. It was fun to get together with "the fab 5" and we managed to throw a pretty amazing shower. Thank goodness for Pinterest... none of us used to have a crafty bone in our bodies! Here are a few pictures from the shower.
J made the cake and do-nut tree. Both were awesome! The shower was Saturday morning so we had a brunch theme with the colors of Kori's nursery- grey, pink, and black. We also had quiche, fruit, and a biscuit bar.
The fab 5... Thick as thieves since 6th grade!
Adorable wreath made by B.
The cute diaper bag that us girls got for K.
Meg and I.
Jessica asked us to be bridesmaids at the end of the shower. She made really cute invites and everything! Of course we all said yes!
Kate, me, and mom. Isn't my mom pretty?
On Sunday, I hosted shower #2 for my SIL, Kellie. Kellie is expecting her third child, a little girl in May. Kellie lives in Southeast Asia so we had the first ever "Skype baby Shower!" Kel got up at 3 am her time to join us via skype so she was able to visit with her guests and watch her mom open all of the gifts. It was a great time.
I hosted the shower with 2 of Kellie's cousins, Rebecca and Nikki.
Rebecca got the cake and it was one of the best I've had! I wish this lady lived in NWA!

Adam and Joodge served as parking attendants. We had quite the turnout so their help was appreciated!
Sunday also happened to be my birthday! I wouldn't have spent it any other way. I loved being surrounded by my friends and family all weekend. My only stipulation was Larry's pizza and that definitely came true!
